eMarine from the Marine Corps
Marines work to stay safe on, off field of battle

Body armor, night-vision goggles and a clean, well-oiled weapon. Computer, Skype account and a high-speed Internet connection. Just as technological advances on the battlefield can help a Marine stay safe, technological advances in communications can erode that safety.

Keeping Marines safe as they communicate with friends and family half a world away falls to the Corps’ World Wide Web warriors – the family readiness officers. Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube allow a Marine easy access to the world outside the unit, a social networking world that is neither safe nor secure. What you say on those sites is easily and readily available to friends and family – and also to those who would do a Marine harm.

Keeping in line with Op-SEC rules regarding troop locations and movement is paramount when Marines’ lives are at risk. To help mitigate those risks, an FRO is the link between families, Marines and unit commands.

The eMarine.org website offers secure forums for families and Marines to communicate, even when troops are deployed, and it has an Op-SEC guide for family members who aren’t sure what constitutes protected information. As another line of defense, the FRO can moderate discussions on eMarine to ensure the information exchanged stays within Op-SEC guidelines.

Likewise, the organization Marine Parents offers “a place to connect and share®” with moderated discussions on MFN: Marine Family Network at www.MarineFamilyNetwork.com.

Keep in mind that your Marine must give you permission to access information through eMarine; it will not be granted just because you request it.

The Marine Corps realizes that social media isn’t going away and that technological advances happen every six months – sometimes less. The Marines want their men and women to be able to communicate while keeping key principles in mind: Respect yourself. Respect your responsibility. And respect the Corps.

Here follows a list of Marine Corps digital properties:

eMarine logo  eMarine.org: Online Communication for Marines and Their Families
Added January 9, 2012

eMarine.org launched September 1, 2011, and is a more safe, secure and central reference point for information from family readiness officers to Marine families. The new technology combines user-friendly interfaces with social media features like chat and mobile internet accessibility, to ensure our heroes and their loved ones can concisely exchange the information they need.
